OK, so maybe it's obvious, but a good, old-fashioned W-A-L-K is a great way for you to get exercise, and plays an essential role in your pet's overall health. Don't think of it as a chore, or you're likely to quit after a quick lap around the block and a pee, which really isn't enough activity for either of you.
How To Do It: If you have a healthy dog, walk a minimum of 15-20 minutes, which is enough to increase her heart rate and bump up her metabolism. Throw in some spurts of jogging or sprinting to keep your pup excited, and give you both a bit of cardio training.
